action, suspense
MPAA Rating:
R for language, and for some violence and sexuality.

The Game is clearly the work of twisted minds. John D. Brancato and Michael Ferris have written a very edgy plot. From moment to moment, it was hard to imagine what else could happen or where the movie could be going, but it was absolutely essential to find out. To say more about the plot would ruin it, and in this movie, plot takes, and deserves, center stage. Oh, and don't ask anyone else what it's about either.

I really enjoyed Michael Douglas's ungluing performance. Sean Penn is also good in his limited screen time, playing essentially the person I've always imagined him being anyway.
